Guest speakers include alumni Vincent Williams (social studies & MS curriculum and instruction) and Erma Vizenor (elementary education, MS guidance and counseling, & Specialist education administration). 

Williams is the assistant principal intern at Lincoln Elementary School in Fargo. He is an integral part of the district’s technology initiative, and has served on several committees including the Fargo North High School Leadership Team, the Fargo Public Schools Social Studies Committee, and the Fargo Public Schools Summer School Task Force.

Vizenor will be representing the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities Board of Trustees & Office of the Chancellor. Gov. Mark Dayton appointed Vizenor to the Board of Trustees in 2014 for a six- year term, expiring June 30, 2020.

lead the largest tribe in Minnesota. She has worked her entire career in education on the White Earth Reservation. She is committed to building a strong infrastructure within the White Earth Reservation, which is necessary in order to exercise sovereignty, self-governance, and service to the tribal citizens.
